Hey peeps was wondering if anyone else if on lithium for BPD?

Had an appointment with the psychiatrist today and will be increasing my lithium dosage from 700mg to 1000mg, so will have to see whether it makers a difference or not

I’ve been on it but unfortunately the side effects are too dangerous for me. I’m one of the few where this drug lowers my blood pressure so much that I pass out all the time.
Not good.
